PRINCE HARRY and Meghan Markle will not ask for wedding gifts from guests when they tie the knot.

Instead, the couple have requested for donations to be made to charity.
Prince Harry and Ms Markle will marry at Windsor Castle on May 19, and when they do, guests will donate to one of seven selected charities.

The Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA), homeless charity Crisis, the Myna Mahila Foundation, Scotty’s Little Soldiers, StreetGames, Surfers Against Sewage and The Wilderness Foundation UK are the other selected charities on the list.

A statement released by Kensington Palace stated: “Many of these are small charities, and the couple are pleased to be able to amplify and shine a light on their work.”

Dr Amanda Williams, chairwoman of CHIVA, said: “We are grateful for the opportunity to raise awareness of the complex issues for young people growing up with HIV.

“We are a very small charity and through our work we support over 1,000 young people living with HIV.

“All donations will make a significant difference to our programmes of work and lead to direct improvements in the lives of these young people.”

Suhani Jalota, who founded Myna Mahila in 2015, said: “Myna Mahila Foundation is delighted to be a part of this special occasion for Ms Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

“This support will enable us to expand our reach into more urban slums in Mumbai, empowering local women through access to menstrual hygiene products and employment opportunities.”
